    To put an end to the mess:saint:, let's predict whom Yu-Na will turn to.
    Given that she's getting two competitive programs and wishful thinking on my part, I'm almost sure we will see her in Tokyo:D

    She should go to Michelle Kwans father for coaching. Look at the wonderful job he did coaching Michelle!:lol:

    Yu-Na and Mao should totally coach each other! Yu-Na can teach Mao a proper lutz and code-whoring and Mao can teach Yu-Na the triple axel and face-slapping.

    I was going to put her with Pam Gregory, but I remembered hearing she got banned, no?

    How about Papa Huth! :lol:

    Or I mean Tom Z would be a logical choice.

    Danny Kwan and Mi hee Park would be most ideal :lol:
    but if she does continue, i'm guessing mum will be in charge for a while. Could see Richard Callaghan maybe as an 'advisor.' Love for her to go to Frank but not gonna happen.

    Because he coaches a lot of high level skaters, idk. And Chan is in Colorado, and he and Yuna are eventually going to end up dating because they both lurve each other.

    Does he have any high level skater other than Flatt and Agnes to lesser extent?

    I should've totally created "she will 'discover' new coach" option.

    That I can actually see happening. I heard YNK used to spend lots of hours training with Tracy Wilson, so I can see her going to dancer-turned-coach.

    I think you're missing the "Go Pro - these are really exhibition programs" option

    Does ShaeLynn do her coaching at the Cricket Club or at another rink in Toronto?

    Does Peter T coach? Could John Z take on another student? What about Alexei Urmanov?

    I think she is torn between AP McDonnough's mom and Tiffany Chin's mom.
    But she might end up with Danny Kwan after all.

    Hence my wishful thinking:eek:
    I just think if she turns pro after all this mess, backlash from Korean media will be way too much.

    Well, Russia is a lot closer to Korea than Canada. Articles keep saying Yuna will stay in Toronto only until her programs are finished, so I don't think she's planning on staying there. Min-Jung is going back to Korea soon according to articles, but I don't know if that is for good or just until she finds another coach. Maybe Yuna and Min-Jung will both go to Russia! Not only is TAT there but now Morozov is too! Although I personally would not want to let Morozov anywhere near Yuna...

    Boitano! Imagine the irony. :D I do admit the scenario of Mao and Yuna training each other is tempting too. :hat1:

    I say Morozov, he will then dump Miki and start :grope: Yuna. Didn't Miki start dating Morozov at 20?

    If tat and morozov got together can you image the program they'd make for her? I'm hoping this happens. Anyone else just can't see it. Most coaches we be like step down IMO.

    Nix all the above choices; it's obvious that Yu-Na's been doing all those shows with Michelle because they've been finalizing coaching plans. :p

    I, too, am leaning towards Yu-Na going pro soon, but if she does decide to continue competing, I've a feeling her new coach will be Russian (and a prominent name at that). I don't think it's just coincidence that her team picked Orser right out of the blue.

    That's your hope for Yuna?

    Maybe we need a separate pool for hall of fame skating mamas.:shuffle:

    Russia has plenty of talented juniors. Having a Russian coach while being non-Rusky won't tip any scale. I think she picked Canadian coach because she had spent every summer at Mariposa and Colorado.

    No new coach, no turning pro, just another Michelle Kwan

    Oh please, he'd try to have both :p! They are only like the 2 most beautiful women in figure skating right now.

    ITA about the TAT and Morozov program - that would be something to see!

    No, I meant Robin Wagner was banned. I'm not sure about the details though.
